Milan received a boost with confirmation Gareth Bale is out of Tuesday's Champions League meeting with Tottenham.
The Welsh wizard has been a key figure in Spurs' European campaign so far, scoring a hat-trick against Inter.
However, manager Harry Redknapp confirmed that Bale will not recover from a back injury in time for Tuesday's game.
Bale already missed today's 2-1 win at Sunderland and does not hold out much hope of even making the trip to San Siro.
